Columbus' Iron Old School Gym
In 2005 I was teaching bootcamp classes that yielded great results. Class sizes were booming. I was also working a full time job and getting my Masters degree in school. I fell in love with the transformations the members achieved and decided to quit my full time job and take the leap and opened an gym in a nearby city. I didn’t want the mainstream fluff that was being offered at other facilities. Instead, I wanted to build an environment that nurtured goal driven hard-working individuals on a mission with a never stop attitude! Body Evolution was born in 2007! Empty warehouses with no air conditioning and concrete floors invite, welcome, and breed men and women who are willing to work hard for their goals. I met and married a lady in the early '10's. He is a former medic who was working in a nearby area. For a year he commuted between smaller city and Columbus. He retired from work and helped with the operations. We decided to move to Columbus, OH. We were originally Body Evolution and Hot Box CrossFit (aptly named for the 100 degree temperatures in the summer) and evolved to provide Functional Fitness classes rather than limit ourselves to just CrossFit. We offer Olympic and powerlifting classes. We are the ONLY Strongman training facility in the area. Our Barbell Club instructor, is CSCS certified and a renowned competitor himself. And our bootcamp classes, the origin of Body Evolution, are hands down the ONLY bootcamp classes with 12 years of proven results! We have pin and plate loaded machines, dumbbells that go up to 150lbs, bumper plates, cardio equipment, atlas stones, etc. If it will help you achieve your goal WE HAVE IT! Or, we will get it!
VISION: We want to help create the best version of YOU whether it be through a sustainable body transformation, an IFBB Pro card, Pro Strongman or Woman, Powerlifting, CrossFit champion, etc. We will provide the environment that nurtures these successes!
